Much has been written about Jaya Bachchan calling “Happy New Year” a ‘nonsensical’ film. The issue started at a literature festival when Jaya commented that “HNY is the most nonsensical film”.
“HNY is the most nonsensical film I’ve seen in recent years. I watched it only because Abhishek was part of it. I told him he’s a great actor if he can act stupid in front of the camera like that. I can’t be part of what is being done in films these days and hence I don’t do films anymore,” she said during the literature festival.
Following that there were reports that her husband Amitabh Bachchan, daughter-in-law Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and son Abhishek apologised to the Badshah of Bollywood for that comment.
